When video games aren’t busy corrupting children and eroding the pillars of civilized society, they’re helping fund research to find a cure for ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Well, at least one game is.
For the past two years, online game publisher GamesCampus has held the GamesCampus ALS Charity Tournament, a free online tournament in its MMO golf game Shot-Online. This year’s tournament is now underway and continues until May 14. Shot-Online producer Tony Liu had this to say:
It’s free to register and to play, and for every person who completes an 18-hole round on the game's Sasori course, GamesCampus will donate $1 to Driving 4 Life’s ALS Therapy Development Institute. It’s a great cause, and you get to positively influence people’s lives by playing a game online. Come on. Does it get any better than that?
